I just ran across Colion Noir for the first time today. How have I never seen this guy before? He’s funny and smart and presents a respectable and intelligent image of gun owners and the armed citizen. I’d like to see him speak at NRA and USCCA gatherings. Sometimes we come off as lunatics on YouTube. Mr. Noir is a clear-thinking, well-spoken advocate we should be proud of.
Watch it to the end for the pay-off.
I’m not affiliated with Glockmeister, but this looks like a good sale so I thought I’d let you guys know about it.
SMYRNA, Ga. -- Today GLOCK, Inc. announced that the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) presented the company with the “Excellence in Firearms Manufacturing” award at the 39th Annual Meeting and Expo, held at the World Center Marriott Resort in Orlando, Fla., on Nov. 6, 2012.
This marks the first time GLOCK has been presented this particular award.
The NASGW Awards are distributed annually to the industry-leading optics, accessory, ammunition and firearms manufacturers who best demonstrate a commitment to two-step distribution and who provide “outstanding value and service.”
“GLOCK is proud to be recognized for its attention to detail and commitment to excellence in manufacturing,” commented Josh Dorsey, GLOCK Vice President. “This award is a testament to our hard work and dedication to delivering our best, every day. We are in great company among the other award winners in the optics, accessories and ammunition categories.”
The criterion for judging was divided into four key components which include:
- Distribution Policy – Manufacturer’s distribution policy and support of the two-step distribution
- Marketing, Promotion and Sales – Knowledgeable, dependable, sales representation and participation in distributor sales training programs
- Logistics and Operations – Promptness of delivery, accuracy, fill rate, effective customer support, adherence to UPC requirements, effective and efficient returns policy and documentation
- NASGW & Industry Support – Exhibits at the annual Expo with key principals in attendance, offers exclusive program for members and is prepared with pricing and new product introductions, supports and contributes to industry programs and causes
“These companies, including GLOCK, represent quality products and services to our members for many years and have been strong supporters of wholesale distribution,” said Jack Baumler, NASGW’s Chairman of the Board.
You know that GLOCK pistols are truly a household word when intelligent questions and answers are exchanged on the mainstream site Yahoo Answers. To me this is encouraging because the more guns can be and are discussed out in the open, the more knowledge and less fear there is associated with them. Guns are not evil, they are tools. Imagine if nail clippers were frowned upon the way Glocks are in this PC world.
Plus, this is a common GLOCK and handgun question. “Why the hell are there two fired shells in my new GLOCK box?”
This Atlanta news video documents the increased sales of guns in Georgia after the presidential election. Where do you stand? Have you bought any new guns or ammo since the election?
I have intentionally kept quiet during the ‘election’ season. Now it’s over and time to respond and face reality. Here is an Alex Jones video that spells it out.
GLOCK Selects Michelle Viscusi to Compete With Team GLOCK for 2013 Practical Shooting Season
Female competitor set for the 2013 season as GLOCK invests in promising future
SMYRNA, Ga. (October 16, 2012) – GLOCK, Inc. today announced its selection of Michelle Viscusi, the 22-year-old Gilbert, Ariz., resident, to join the handgun manufacturer’s Practical Shooting ensemble, Team GLOCK. Viscusi, who was featured on the Season 4 hit series TOP SHOTand is currently an active member of the Arizona National Guard, will join Team GLOCK competitors KC Eusebio, three-time Steel Challenge National Champion and Junior shooting Tori Nonaka.
Along with other international female shooters, Viscusi was evaluated during the 2012 season and scored high marks for her grasp of the sport with little competitive training or experience. Working with Eusebio, Viscusi made great strides in her “on the field” performances in United Sates Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) and International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) matches around the country.
“This has been a dream of mine since my father took my family to the range and taught us the basics of shooting handguns,” stated Viscusi. “It wasn’t until I entered the National Guard that I began to shoot competitively. I am very excited about being the newest member of Team GLOCK.”
Viscusi will make her debut with teammate Eusebio in Mesa, AZ on November 7, 2012, for the USPSA Rio Salado Desert Classic Area Championship and finish out the season in Caguas, Puerto Rico, on December 12, 2012, competing in the International Practical Shooting Federation (IPSC) Puerto Rico Nationals.
